In this week’s session we’ll demonstrate how an existing systems of record application can be enhanced to take advantage of IBM Blockchain’s security and data provenance.

We start with a motor insurance policy application that presents a 3270 green screen interface from CICS, and allows company employees to create new policies, entering vehicle make and model information manually.

Having joined a consortium using Hyperledger Fabric, and Hyperledger Composer, the application is modernized by taking advantage of z/OS Connect EE’s support to pull vehicle information from the Composer REST server. This data is then used when creating a new motor insurance policy, preventing mistakes on input and providing data provenance. A web frontend is presented using CICS Liberty, to deliver a better user experience.

  1. Hi – Can we have a notes calendar invite for this event?

    • Hi Vidya, I will ask John Widdifield to see if he can create a notes calendar invitation for you. But when you download the ical initation using the add to calendar link, you should be able to open it with Lotus Notes and add it to your notes calendar. I have done this successfully with several past events.
